Hawaii education officials, union leaders and the governor's office are continuing efforts to come to terms on a plan to end teacher furloughs this year, with 11 instructional days already lost and six scheduled furlough days remaining this school year. The teachers union and the governor's office have each rejected proposals to avoid the furlough days. Some say time has run out, and state lawmakers are working on legislation to provide enough aid to schools to avoid furloughs next year.
